We had people over on Tuesday who included vegetarians and someone who's lactose intolerant.

I made potato and carrot curry, eggs in curried tomato sauce, roast cauliflower, green chutney, cabbage and onions, cinnamon nuts, and quinoa. Not a crumb of matza, no meat! Everyone cleaned their plates and, the only bad thing, there were hardly any leftovers.

we're in the home stretch haha


I'm almost out of matzah! might need to buy more. tonight was supposed to be matzah pizza but I do not have enough so I found a recipe that you make the crust with zucchini, matzah cake meal, cheese, & eggs... I forget what else... I'm going to try it tonight

yesterday's and tomorrow's dinners do/did not use any matzah but I still need it for lunches and breakfasts....

I made a really good dessert last night - a jelly roll with just eggs, sugar, potato starch and water. no maztah meal. we made the roll and the filling (a custard basically) key lime flavor - it was soooo good.

I bought 10 lbs of matzah (plus a lb of GF oat matzah and 1 package of shmura matzah, not sure how big that was) and I think we're in the middle of our 2nd box? We're going to have TONS left over this year!

Ah, I found my matzah cereal recipe that I'd posted over on the Feingold board last year: (ETA: oops, I actually posted it 3 years ago!)

1 box (1 lb) matzah or farfel
2 cups chopped nuts (I've used walnuts, coconut, almonds and/or cashews. I've also made it without nuts at all.)
1 stick butter or 1/2 cupoil
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)


Break the matzah into small pieces and divide into 4 foil pans (approxiomately 1-1.5 cups matzah pieces per foil pan)

Add 1/2 cup chopped nuts to each pan. Stir

Put foil pans into preheated 325 degree oven to toast- stir with spatula every few minutes.

Meanwhile, combine butter or oil, sugar, cinnamon, and water in a saucepan on medium. Stir occasionally until the mixture boils, then stir constantly for about a minute.

When the matzah mixture is toasted and the sugar mixture is ready, pour about 1/4 of the sugar mixture into each foil pan and stir well with the spatula. (If the sugar mixture is ready first, turn off the heat while waiting for the matzah to toast.)

Cook the matzah-sugar mixture another 20 minutes or so, stirring every few minutes to prevent burning.

When you remove it from the oven, leave it in big pieces (like granola bars) or break into small pieces (for cereal)

After cooling, store in an airtight container.

The original recipe called for stirring in raisins after removing the mixture from the oven,and before cooling, but my kids don't like raisins.

key lime jelly roll
3 eggs seperated
1 whole egg
3/4 c sugar
2 t key lime juice (or any other citrus - actual recipe called for lemon but we are true floridians lol) + grated rind of key lime or other citrus.
1/4 c + 1 T potato starch
dash of salt
confectioners sugar (you can make your own that is k for p - mix 1 c of sugar and 1 t of potato starch in a food processor)

beat yolks w/ whole egg. gradually add sugar, juice and zest.

sift pot. starch and mix in gradually

seperatly whip whites till stiff w/ dash of salt

fold in.

line jelly roll pan with greased wax paper. distribute batter evenly.

bake at 350 for about 25 minutes - till cake springs back when touched.

turn cake out onto towel that has been dusted w/ powdered sugar. remove wax paper and roll up. let cool. when cool unroll, fill with filling, and reroll.

for the filling i made a key lime custard but you can use anything including frosting, jelly, or even ice cream (yum).

if you use ice cream you should freeze it (obviously) - roll it in something airtight. and then put it in the fridge a little before serving so you can cut it (gets very hard when frozen)


Here's the recipe for the custard i made
2 eggs
3/4 c sugar
1 T potato starch
1 c water
1 t oil
1/4 c key lime juice (or other citrus)

beat eggs, mix sugar & pot starch, slowly add. combine water oil and juice, slowly add. cook on top of double boilr till thick (takes a while)

yummers.

tonight I got rave reviews for chicken parm. Coating was matzo meal, then egg, then passover breadcrumbs. Everyone loved it! We had a toss salad with it.

not chicken parm since there's no "parm"

LOL my mom used to call it that too though... there should be another name for it without the cheese....

oy!

funny thing , I used to get "tingly feeling" in my mouth /throat from eggplant. Now I don't touch eggplant, even though dh and dd looove babaganoush.
Ithink eggplant and tomatoes are from the same family, nightshade vegetables, I also love tomatoes:
ds was (maybe still is somewhat) allergic to tomato but if he has some
pasta sauce or other cooked tomato stuff once in a while he doesn't seem to react
